football players are university employees
Then why do they (some) pay their employer room & board, plus tuition?

All private schools that pay their players will be in violation of NCAA rules. This means YOU Notre Dame.

Agree.
Tuition at NW is about 60k/year - if a player red-shirts that can be 300,000K just in tuition.
Add in Room & Board, meals (special meals for the players), medical care, and sundry other perks we may not be aware of, and that's a pretty sweet deal.
Now they want a SALARY on top of that?
